Blakes is a beautiful cosy cottage affording flexible accomodation and is a fantastic base for a holiday whatever the season. In 2016 this cottage has been redecorated and BT infinity installed, giving excellent connectivity.
Blakes is furnished with quality fixtures and fittings, bought specifically to suit the property. There are three areas in which to relax, a conservatory( just off the farmhouse kitchen) and two sitting rooms. One has an open fire and is what we refer to as the snug, as the TV lives here and it is where the children like to be. The second sitting room has a log- burner and it seems to be the area that guests refer to as the "adult space" where they can relax and take wine! The oil fired heating system is very efficient at Blakes which is why this is such a cosy cottage!
Conveniently situated on the coastal road from Kingsbridge towards Dartmouth, the property is close to the beautiful sandy coves that surround Start Point and provides miles of stunning cliff top walks. Slapton Ley Nature Reserve is also nearby which is well loved by all bird watching enthusiasts. In the other direction (2 miles) is the wonderful market town of Kingsbridge, with a rich variety of shops and restaurants and a small market twice a week. Just 7.5 miles from the house is the sailing mecca of Salcombe as well as the sandy stretches at Thurlestone and Bantham. For sailors, boat hire is possible in Salcombe and there is a sailing school where weekly courses can be booked for children.
Blakes has a pretty enclosed garden, with two patio areas, to allow guests to catch both the morning and evening sun. There is parking to the side of the house for up to three cars.
